Yes, I am liking that quite a bit actually (nectar d'or). No vis are the usual lag 16 and glenkinchie 12, but it is time for me to branch out.

Edit: wait I guess you knew that

I think the whole "point" (or not-point, if you will) of Synthèse centers on the very lack of a central aesthetic, or identity. Synthèse was once, in his youth, a bunny-hill punk; subsequently a raw denim enthusiast, pairing Clarks and bd's with other timeless classics; Rick and Damir eventually entered the frame; oh, not to mention Cloak- and ToJ-obsessions; a brief flirtation with Yohji (though perhaps at this point merely caché); and one can also retrieve elements of "English gentleman." We've seen a lot, and it is never consistent, never fixed.

Which brings me to the very irony of this creature we find in our midst: there really is no "Synthèse"; there is no resolution. He is an infinite dialectic—a nomad of aesthetics, indiscriminately flipping the pages of the calendar as his boots touch upon new ground. It's a joke; we've been had. This is just the repetitious looping between between thèse and antithèse, no resolution.

Pretension to restrict its movement is always already undercut by PENISSSSSSS

well when i mentioned "winter woodsman in the english countryside which clearly has nothing to do with synthèse whatsoever" i meant it had everything to do with him as he's in the english countryside and i know for a fact he chops his own wood ...

FFS, so much backlash, perhaps my comment was too strong, but I feel that the recent abundance of lumberjack shirts and trucker jackets makes this look very middle of the road hipster, even though in much nicer fabrics.

You have the body to wear very fitted clothes, I think it's a shame that the shirt fits your chest and arms very tightly/nice if you are going for that look, while it is slightly on wide side around your stomach.
thewho13, what kind of wool is that sweater?
Well, it's a small, and I'm 6'1" with a 35" sleeve, so I'm gonna go ahead and say that the long sleeves are intended. rolleyes.gif

And yeah, I could get it tailored or whatever to slim it down, but I don't really think it's necessary. I wear a lot of slim-fitting clothing, but I'm trying to integrate a few pieces here and there that just kind of hang instead of clinging. Just because I have the body type for form-fitting clothing, it doesn't mean that all of my clothing should be form-fitting, y'know?

also notwithit: i've never really liked your hair. you always have this pretty boy clark kent type of thing going on, but to me it never really works. you should buzz your hair.

What're you getting at here? mwink[1].gif

Re: the hair, I hand't really thought about buzzing it. Based on previous experience, I think I'd look a little too severe (skeletal?) with a buzz cut. Also, the hair hides some scar tissue on my forehead and scalp. If and when I start losing my hair, I'll probably end up cutting it pretty short, just maybe not buzz-cut short.

You schmucks trying to respond to Louis in earnest obviously never venture over to MC.

aaaaaand done

if anything about that fit looks remotely "hipster" to you ... i can't
post #80724 of 115914
oh holy shit sorry guys just saw how huge that photo is on my computer; I'll change it now.
post #80725 of 115914
notwithit, agree a looser fit can look fine and too that it's not necessary to slim this shirt down as it still looks good on you, only thought it to be a good idea because the chest and sleeves both are quit tight and would creat a homogenous look, but this might indeed be a MC approach, which once again you might not be after.

Synthese I am sure you can find a nice red shirt with better detailing/texture than that.

What do you guys have against awesome flannel?

post #80728 of 115914
That variation of the flannel in the black/red checkers is what hipsters wore back in 09

Everywhere you turned was a guy with some similar variation probably picked up from Urban
